So no one was a fan of this chapel? did anyone look through the thumbnails? I was kind of dazzled by it. Might be my favorite chapel outside of Gaudi's. Of course it would be impractical during a snow storm, but perfect for spring showers - bring an umbrella.

You have a real interest in architecture, don't you, Rose? I have a mild interest but that chapel's a little over the top for my taste. I know my kid would love it!
Ever hear of M.C. Esher? We have an Esher designed house right here in my town. Actually it's just a block away from where I live. Nothing particularly impressive about it, but it was a really cool story for our local paper. Yes, someone finally figured it out.

Not Ireland! Is that what you were thinking? Yeah, I wish. No, I'm staying in the Midwest. I'm not sure when I'll get back to Ireland but I hope it's soon.
My husband called me Monday night to say he was sitting in a restaurant overlooking the Pacific .....but it was a business dinner. I'd had a Lean Cuisine and really didn't want to hear about it. In other words, saying he was "suffering" was just a little bit of sarcasm.

I do. Especially when an architect brings the outside inside / visa versa. One of the things that makes my blood boil is when I see a plop house (code for greedy developer) facing an extraordinary view and have nothing in the way of windows and balconies to take advantage of it. Grrr

If you ever get a chance, could you take a photograph of the Escher house (put it on image bin) and send it to me in a private pm? Just for your own safety. I didn't know that about Escher. I didn't know he lived in California. hmmmm dialing uncle google

BTW: to whom it may concern - thanks for all the kevits. I thought my account was smoked. Guess not - oh happy day!

We usually go to LA a couple of times a year to see friends and family but now that he's working for a company headquartered just north of there I hope to go with him once in a while. I've been threatening to find Rose one of these days. Maybe we could all meet up?

Actually I was thinking the northwest. I really should take a little time off to go camp in the desert before it's to hot

What restaurant was he at? Nice. have you ever visited the Getty Villa in Malibu?- not the big white box on the hill. This one you have to make reservations for.

Chicago is a great city. I like the midwest; I find it exotic. When I've visited, it's been in the fall. The colors OMG. And the architecture. Sullivan, FLW. I want to see the "bean" and that fountain with the digital portraits.

Oregon? Yeah, we're still trying to figure out when we'll get there. I hope it's soon because most of the traveling we're doing isn't too relaxing, but that would be the best. We'd thought maybe end of May/first of June but now it's looking like we'll have to push it further into the summer. Still working on that. I'll be back in a week and we'll have a week together at home before he leaves for a week in Las Vegas. And so it goes....

I've only been to the Getty on the 405, not the one in Malibu. I've read about it, though.

He really is great. A favorite of mine. We have a few of his homes here in LA. I about died when i heard they tore down one of his homes on the island of Catalina. Right now he has a home (or maybe it's his son) who is under threat of demolition in Arizona. Thats where urgency is now - saving the homes his son has built. Some skate board giant bought one in Palos Verdes and after much fighting, got the permit to tear it down.. People were fighting him but this is also the town where they rolled out the red carpet for Donald Trump.

He took over the wild lands and left us a little trail on the edge of his golf course LOL (but at least it's on the ocean side.)
